Herodotus - The History

"Why do we insist that just because something is written 6,000 years ago that makes it good? Maybe, just maybe, it's 6,000 years old for a good reason. I have to admit, I still haven't finished it."

"Known as the father of history, this author used a bit too much of greek mythology for my taste. Unless you really believe in greek gods, this seemed pointless to me."

"When it was written, people sat around campfires telling the story of their people to pass the time between hunts and religious feasts. Unfortunately for good old Herodotus, we modern folk have the luxuries of television and film."
